To quote the article:
"Call of Duty: Black Ops II and its fictional storylines are aimed at providing fun and enjoyment. It is clear to game players that his [Noriega's] character and others that are based on real-life figures are fantasy.
"Including Gen. Petraeus and other real-life figures was strictly a creative decision made many months ago when the storyline was drafted."
I read this to mean that the character was deliberately based on him and so that would be a fraudulent claim.
"Most people have their console connected all the time and when they do disconnect it, it's to take it to a friends who also has Internet. But suddenly everyone on the Internet was spending weeks at their uncle's cabin in the mountains where you couldn't even get mobile signal. I don't believe it."
Some people live in areas where internet connectivity is less accessible and don't want to have to go to great extents to connect to a slow connection that then may take a while to authenticate. EVERY DAY!
"Reselling was the best thing of all under the original model. Instead of going via Gamestop, who pay you a pittance for it and sell it for barely less than new, you could have resold via the game's developers. That keeps money in a closed loop between customer and developer and thus makes the entire cycle more profitable meaning either more investment in games or greater ability to compete on price, or more likely both. As opposed to Gamestop which is a giant machine grafted onto the side of the customer-developer symbiosis which just extracts money to pay for useless things like store space, staffing costs, etc. (Useless from the point of view of customers and developers)."
1 word: Ebay.
Why have they Changed the layout of Data Centre/ BOFH from the previous grid layout that allowed a full screen full of them to this new layout where it shows them in a one wide list with an icon next to them? It is even more stupid when you realise that most of them in fact have no icon associated with them and so they just show the no-icon icon.
